Note from the Principals

Dear Frank Love Families,

May? How did we get here? We are working hard at planning for next year while we are enjoying our time with our new configuration. It has been such a great experience seeing how the students are thriving both online and off. The adjustment that they are making is remarkable. We just keep thinking about how this is such a strange time but the skills that they have learned will last them their entire lives!

We have a lot of assessments coming up for both our students qualifying for High Cap and our English Language Learners. We will have a virtual whole school assembly on May 12 and we are looking forward to having everyone together that day. It will also be recorded in case students don’t have the ability to attend live virtually!

Please make sure you let us know if you plan to attend Frank Love next year by completing the enrollment form (see below).

Thank you for your continued partnership and here’s to our last full month of the year!

Sincerely,
Katy French, Principal
Denise Waters, Assistant Principal

Health Room News

Seasonal Allergies vs. COVID – How to keep your child in school!

As you can see by the CDC graphic above, seasonal allergies and COVID have many of the same symptoms! To keep our student population and staff safe, we send students home who have any one of the symptoms above in the darkened area of the circles.

If your child has known seasonal allergies and you want to avoid having them sent home, you can send in a letter from their healthcare provider documenting their diagnosis along with their expected symptoms. Please reach out to me with questions, thank you! Nurse Shelly 425-408-4606.
